Our Québec plants as benchmarks
Our Québec plants regularly welcome guests. From students eager to learn more about metallurgy to partners and members of the community, these visits are a great opportunity for us to showcase our facilities and highlight the expertise and passion of our people for what they do best.
Expertise: an exportable Québec resource
Alcoa Canada Global Primary Products employees enjoy a solid reputation throughout North America and beyond. Over the last few years, over 100 of our employees from Baie-Comeau, Bécancour and Deschambault have gone abroad to share best practices with their new colleagues at the Fjardaál Smelter in Iceland and at the anode plant in Mosjøen, Norway. The latter in turn came to Québec to be trained on our fully operational equipment while theirs was still being installed or tested.
The expertise or our employees is currently being applied to an industrial complex in Raz Az Zawr, Saudi Arabia. This megaproject, valued at more than $10 billion, includes a bauxite mine, an alumina refinery, a smelter and a rolling mill. Ma’aden is Alcoa’s Saudi partner in this initiative.
